Media and Publications
Several publications are available to the College and community. The “Lariat”, a standard-size newspaper published by journalism students, is distributed weekly during the regular academic year. Journalism program students also publish a magazine, “Orange Appeal” once a year in the spring semester. In addition, the Liberal Arts division publishes “Wall”, a literary journal featuring the creative writing and artwork of Saddleback English students. Once yearly, the ESL (English as a Second Language) department produces “International Voice,” a compendium of student-written essays.
Saddleback College’s own Channel 39 on Cox Cable broadcasts telecourses, district events, and film and television projects by students in the Cinema/Television/Radio Department, which include many film/video festival winners. The radio program in Cinema/TV/Radio is built around Saddleback College’s on-air radio station, 88.5FM KSBR, and its Internet radio station, OCRockRadio.com. Students are eligible to apply for various positions at the stations, including on-air broadcasting, programming, promotions, sales, and music - an opportunity few other colleges can offer.
